Revitalize Spine and Sports Care is a non-opioid pain clinic that focuses on solving the underlying problem causing the pain, rather than just masking symptoms. We begin by recording a really good, in-depth history and doing comprehensive physical exams, neurological and orthopedic. For those that need it, we offer an in-house imaging service, speeding up the process of getting to the bottom of your pain and treating it.

In recent years, Dr. Groner has worked at Kadlec, Prosser Memorial Health and at Hermiston’s Good Shepherd Health Care system.

“As a former hospital CEO who has spent more than a quarter century in healthcare, Dr. Groner is the physician I trust to treat both my wife and I. He takes the time to listen to your issues and then performs a thorough physical exam, often ordering essential tests (MRIs, X-rays, etc.) to further his medical evaluation. Afterward his treatment recommendations are sound and medically appropriate. 
Gentle, compassionate, and intelligent, Dr. Groner is one of the few physicians I entrust with my life. He is the only person who has helped resolve chronic joint and spine conditions that have caused me pain and suffering for decades. Dr. Groner is the epitome of professionalism, a true credit to his craft.
Don’t settle for the rest when you can get the best in Dr. Groner.”  

Alan Joseph, former hospital CEO

"Today I had a lumbar epidural steroid injection. I was nervous so Dr. Groner gave me a sedative (not needed). I felt no more pain than I do with a flu shot. He has great bed side manor."

F.T., Richland

"I can't say enough about this fine doctor. Very thorough and knowledgeable and care about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Groner. I've had chronic back pain for over 25 years. He ordered several tests and found the underlying problem when other doctors couldn't."

Patty Yahne, Prosser

"Seven years ago, following back injuries and several back surgeries, I was in constant pain and discomfort. Surgeries had not relieved the pain and I was referred to Dr. Groner. Dr. Groner, found and fixed the problem. He gave me back the things that I love doing—golfing, biking and swimming! Recently, when the pain returned, I knew just where to go to find relief—from Dr. Groner at Revitalize Spine & Sports Care!"

Jim Kion, Richland

"He did for me what even he thought might not be possible. He said "When I looked at your spine, I threw everything I learned in anatomy class out the window". I'm so glad he came to Puyallup. Now he has moved over the mountains but we have a motorhome and we WILL TRAVEL!"

S.B., Puyallup

"One of the better physician appointments I have ever had. He does not prescribe narcotics - he uses other options. I have had 26 orthopedic surgeries over the last 45 years. Staff is friendly and truly concerned. I saw him at a consult and then 2 days later for an x-ray review where he spent 45 minutes visually reviewing the MRI, CT and x-rays with me and explaining options."

L.R., Kennewick

"Dr. Groner is so thorough. He explains everything so that I can understand what's going on, what is going to happen, and what comes next. I really feel like he cares. I trust him. Since going to Dr. Groner, I have been able to function again, have a full-time job and a full life! Thank you Dr. Groner for giving my life back to me."

W.L., Kennewick

"If you ever need a Pain Management Doctor I recommend Dr. John Groner.  He has helped me find where my pain is coming from.  He treats you as friend and wants the best for you.  He doesn't just give pain pills.  He finds out the root of where the pain is coming from and helps you find the correct Doctor to fix the problem.  Thanks Dr. Groner I consider you as friend & brother who cares for people."
